§ Mr. Donner
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the experiments to test the efficiency of the more humane Sawyer rabbit trap have been completed; and whether these now justify the prohibition of the use of gin traps.
Mr. T. Williams
Further tests with the Sawyer trap have recently been completed. There has not yet been time to make a detailed study of the reports on these tests, but a preliminary examination leaves little doubt that the Sawyer trap is not so efficient as the gin for catching rabbits.
